Jonny Taylor of Morpeth Harriers finished third behind Aldershot and Farnham International Andy Vernon,
in the Senior Men’s 9.51k event at the opening British Cross Challenge fixture,
held at Teardrop Lakes, near Milton Keynes on Saturday 12th November.
Taylor, who had enjoyed his first outing of the winter at Mansfield the previous week,
was well up with the leading pace, and in fact took on the lead going into the final 2k of the event,
only to fall back to his finishing slot in the closing stages behind
second placed Ben Connor of Derby, and winner Vernon.
In the end, posting a time of 29m01s, he was nineteen seconds adrift of Vernon,
and seven seconds adrift of Connor, and ten seconds ahead of fourth placed Adam Hickey of Southend.
